DblClick Event, CanPaste Property, Paste, Copy Methods Example

The following example uses the CanPaste property and the Paste method to paste a ComboBox from the Clipboard to a Page of a MultiPage. This sample also uses the SetFocus and Copy methods to copy a control from the form to the Clipboard.

The user clicks CommandButton1 to copy the ComboBox to the Clipboard. The user double-clicks (using the DblClick event) CommandButton1 to paste the ComboBox to the MultiPage.

To use this example, copy this sample code to the Declarations portion of a form. Make sure that the form contains:

  • A TextBox named TextBox1.
  • A ComboBox named ComboBox1.
  • A MultiPage named MultiPage1.
  • A CommandButton named CommandButton1.

This example also includes a subroutine to illustrate pasting text into a control.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    ComboBox1.AddItem "It's a beautiful day!" 
    CommandButton1.Caption = "Copy ComboBox to " _
        & "Clipboard"
    CommandButton1.AutoSize = True
End Sub

Private Sub MultiPage1_DblClick(ByVal Index As Long, _
    ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) 
    If MultiPage1.Pages(MultiPage1.Value).CanPaste = _
        TextBox1.Text = "Can't Paste"
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
End Sub

'Code for pasting text into a control
'Private Sub ComboBox1_DblClick(ByVal Cancel As _
'   If ComboBox1.CanPaste = True Then
'        ComboBox1.Paste
'    Else
'        TextBox1.Text = "Can't Paste"
'    End If
'End Sub
